Drilling though a tile in a dashboard

Hello Looker community!

I’m in need of help, i’ve been struggling with this for a while and I’m sure some of you guys have done this before.

What I want to accomplish is drilling through a visualization that is tiled into a dashboard. Let me explain:
I created a Look, a single value viz, that shows how many orders I’ve got in a period of time compared to last year. When I click that Look being in explore mode, the drill overlay appears with the detail of every single order in that period.

But when I add the Look to a dashboard, if I click the value nothing happens, but I expect it to show the same drill overlay

When clicking “1.637” the drill overlay should appear but it doesn’t.


Is there something I’m missing? I thought this would be very straightforward.

Managed to do it! In case somebody was wondering, you have to place the drill_fields on the view instead of the dimension/measure and it will work in dashboards ;)
